Austin – Local Food

After walking to meet a client in the neighborhood last Friday, I stopped by the pickup point for our Community Supported Agriculture farm shares on the way home. Vegetables in hand I arrived at home and then turned around to walk to a neighbor’s house for happy hour.

My pedestrian-friendly neighborhood dream at the Mueller Development has come true. To celebrate, here’s a picture of the vegetables that we get from Hands of the Earth Farm, and some links to more information about being a locavore.

Crop share!

I am not exclusively a locavore myself, but I do enjoy some locally grown vegetables from the Boggy Creek area.

For a neighborhood of 350 homes, the Mueller redevelopment showed it’s green by quickly snapping up 30 half-shares of the farms’ produce.

We’ve had spinach, radishes, carrots, garlic, onions, lettuce, fennel, dill, greens, beets and more so far, and the season has just begun.
